11 Best Takeout Spots in Toronto

11 Best Takeout Spots in Toronto

On the hunt for the best restaurants to grab takeout and delivery food from in Toronto?

If you’re able to, it’s always best to order directly for pickup or delivery through the restaurant, but I totally understand that’s not always feasible for everyone!

Restaurants pay a hefty amount in commission fees to Toronto food apps, and ordering directly from them ensures they get 100% of the amount.

Any orders definitely help though, so even if you’re only able to order through takeout or delivery apps, that’s totally cool.

Whether you’re looking for quick bites or fancier eats, here are some of the best takeout options in Toronto to order!

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Best takeout spots in Toronto

Spicy Habanero Salmon poké bowls from Rolltation Toronto


Poke is one of my fave takeout dishes because it still tastes delicious whether you’re eating it immediately or you’re eating it 30 minutes later.

Rolltation serves up some of the best poke bowls in Toronto, and they’ve also got sushi burritos and salads.

You can build your own sushi burritos or bowls, or pick from one of their signature ones.

They also have Japanese appetizers like Takoyaki (deep fried octopus balls) and Karaage (deep fried chicken), though the poke bowls are filling enough!

I always go for their Classic Salmon Poke Bowl – it’s da best.

Aburi Butterfish Dragon and Aburi Scallop Dragon Rolls from Kibo Sushi House in Richmond Hill, Ontario

Kibo Sushi House

Got a craving for some of the best sushi in Toronto (that’s also affordable)?

Kibo Sushi is a fave of many Torontonians not only because of all their convenient locations, but because of their affordable yet delicious sushi rolls.

They’ve got plenty of different sushi and sashimi combos or a la carte rolls, alongside cooked dishes like Gyoza and Chicken Karaage.

My go-to order is the Spicy Maki Trio combo, which comes with 6 pieces each of spicy California, spicy salmon, and spicy tuna rolls – they make some of the best spicy rolls out there!

I also love any of their aburi (torched) sushi rolls – they’re absolutely amaze.

They’ve got plenty of locations across Toronto, with some just being takeout spots and some having actual seating inside for dining in!

You can order for pick up through Ritual, one of my fave Toronto food apps, and you can get $10 off your first order using my code!

J San Sushi & Market in Markham, Ontario

J San Sushi Bar

Can’t get enough of sushi?

J San serves up incredible torched sushi rolls and fresh sashimi at their restaurant on Jarvis.

They’ve got plenty of delicious options on their menu, but their lunch specials and sushi combos are what you’ll want to order.

You absolutely need to try their heavenly Torched Sushi & Roll Combo, which comes with torched salmon, tuna, scallop, beef and shrimp, as well as their Ultimate Dragon Roll.

They normally do have seating inside the restaurant, but it’s currently closed off, so they’re only available for takeout!

They also have a location in Markham, which operates as both a sushi bar and market.

LOCATION: 186 Jarvis St, Toronto, ON

BBQ Chicken from Roywoods Toronto


Roywoods has some of the best jerk chicken in Toronto, though I’m definitely a big fan of their BBQ Chicken.

I usually get their plates instead of their sandwiches, ’cause they’re a lot less messy to eat.

All of their chicken is halal as well, which is great for my halal-eating friends!

You can find them at Union Station and CityPlace in Toronto, as well as inside Yorkdale Mall or Square One in Mississauga.

Banh Mi Nguyen Huong in Toronto

Banh Mi Nguyen Huong

You’ll find delicious and authentic banh mi sandwiches for around $3 to $5 at Nguyen Huong (I’m all for cheap eats).

Banh mi (pronounced bun-mee) is typically filled with meat, pickled veggies, pâté, and a butter/mayo spread, and served on a French baguette.

They also have some other Vietnamese snacks and desserts available at their Chinatown shop.

I’ve been coming to Nguyen Huong since I was a kid, and my grandma even used to make rice cakes for their store!

If you’ve heard of the other popular Toronto chain, Banh Mi Boys, you’ll be excited to hear that it’s owned by the sons of Nguyen Huong’s owners.

You can also visit Banh Mi Nguyen Huong in Vaughan near Vaughan Mills!

LOCATION: 322 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON

Banh Mi Boys in Toronto

Banh Mi Boys

Banh Mi Boys puts their own unique spin on the classic Vietnamese sandwich with more modern fillings like meatballs and deep fried squid, and they do the same with their Korean-inspired tacos and Chinese bao.

Definitely go for the Squid Banh Mi and 5 Spice Pork Belly Bao – they’re my go-to orders whenever I come here!

They’ve also got vegetarian options if you’re looking for that.

I pretty much lived at Banh Mi Boys while I was studying at Toronto Metropolitan University because they have a location right at Yonge & Gerrard.

Their OG location is by Queen & Spadina, and they’ve also got locations in Midtown (Yonge & Eglinton) and at York University.

You can order for pick up through Ritual (one of my fave Toronto food apps), and you can get $10 off your first order using my link!

Basil Box in Toronto

Basil Box

Basil Box serves up delicious Thai food in Toronto, except it’s more takeout-style than an actual restaurant.

You can pick everything that goes in your box, from the protein to the veggies.

The portions are also enough here that I can have two meals, but Adam usually finishes the other half for me 😛

Wong's Ice Cream in Toronto
Korean Banana Milk, Black Sesame with Salted Egg Swirl, and Vietnamese Coffee ice cream from Wong’s Ice Cream.

They’ve also partnered with Wong’s Ice Cream (a really awesome ice cream shop that closed down during the pandemic), and you can purchase pints of 5 of their most popular flavours in all Basil Box locations!

I used to visit Basil Box’s Yonge & Dundas location literally all the time while I was a Toronto Metropolitan University student.

They’ve since opened up locations across Canada, and it’s been really cool to see!

Loaded Pierogi in Toronto

Loaded Pierogi

If you haven’t had pierogis before, they’re amazing European dumplings that are typically stuffed with potatoes and boiled.

Loaded Pierogi’s pierogis are literally heaven on earth, and you can choose from different toppings like BBQ Brisket and Butter Chicken.

You can also choose between boiled or fried pierogis, and I love doing half and half.

I usually visit their Union Station location!

Loaded Pierogi is actually a local pierogi chain with a few locations across Toronto and the GTA, including in Hamilton, Bowmanville, and Ottawa.

Takeout pizza from King Taps Toronto

King Taps

King Taps is a busy spot in the Financial District that serves up delicious cocktails and awesome pizza, which is perfect for takeout.

They’ve got a menu full of elevated fusion pub eats, and it’s all absolutely delicious!

King Taps Toronto

But of course, their pizzas are my favourite thing on the menu – they’ve got some of the best pizza in Toronto!

I adore all of their pizzas, but I’d have to say their BBQ Chicken, Stinging Bee, and Prawn & Pesto pizzas are my faves.

LOCATION: 100 King St W, Toronto, ON

Kupfert & Kim in Toronto's PATH

Kupfert & Kim

Searching for some healthy and delicious vegan takeout in Toronto?

Everything on the menu at Kupfert & Kim is “wheatless and meatless”, and it’s almost all prepared in-house from scratch.

They receive fresh produce every morning at each of their locations, so everything you get is super fresh (and colourful).

Many of their ingredients are also organic and sourced locally, which is awesome!

They even offer a small discount if you bring your own container for takeout.

They’ve got a bunch of locations in Toronto, with most of them concentrated in the Financial District and in the PATH.

Roti Cuisine of India

Lamb korma roti is the best thing ever and I would eat it everyday of my life if I could.

Roti Cuisine of India is located at Spadina and Dupont, close to the University of Toronto.

I don’t have any photos because roti isn’t a very attractive dish, but take my word for it being absolutely delicious.

Since the roti is so huge and filling, I also eat it for at least two meals!

Indian Roti House and Butter Chicken Roti are two other great Indian restaurants in Toronto that serve roti!

LOCATION: 308 Dupont St, Toronto, ON
